Poll: Are Villa Just Lucky!?!?!?!?

Poll: Are Villa Just Lucky!?!?!?!?

Our latest poll, suggested by Tallaght Villan, asks if all the talk is right, are Villa just lucky?

Arsenal fans have especially said on forums etc that Villa are lucky, but does the league really lie?

Forum member villahibs isn't amused by the sounds of it!

Well actually it's Arsenal who have now scored 6 last minute / injury time goals this season, a higher total than ANY OTHER TEAM in the PL. The 'lucky Villa' and 'battling Arsenal' quotes are really starting to bore me. They are struggling and they know it. Every interview you hear with an Arsenal connection smacks of desperation, some of the quotes are downright comical. Wenger said last night Arsenal had to dig in and fight till the end, and because of that they 'won at least a point'!! What the feck does that mean?? We won at least a point. It doesn't even make sense.

I don't want to go into this in to much detail, but any respect I had for Wenger or Arsenal Football Club has totally left me in the last couple of months. I actually now hate them and all the excuses for dropped points, and total lack of respect for any team who dares get a result against them. I'd p!ss myself if Everton beat them to 5th place.

If it was a good run in a cup, it might be put down to luck, but this is the league, we've played 23 games, they can't all have been lucky!

we were very lucky for most of last season, sntaching winners in the last few minutes, or in games the opposition dominated. To some extent, you make your won luck by having really good players, like young, agbonlahor and barry. however in other ways, your just plain lucky.

We've had 2 pieces of good luck, from memory. Milner's goal against West Ham and the Penalty against Sunderland. That's not really a much in the way of luck, is it? The rest is down to skill and hard work. A goal in the 92nd minute is no luckier than one in the first. A team should play for the allotted time, not 89 minutes. Think about all the bad luck - Stoke, Middlesbrough and Arsenal, and you have to start thinking we've been on the wrong end of the luck scales.

Heathfield I fully agree with you about the 2 pieces of luck and the penalty was definately a foul so you could maybe discount it....only the goal against West Ham was lucky and to be fair after watching them yesterday it shows just how well we defended against them they looked good against Hull

Liverpoo were lucky at the start of the season but nobody seems to pick up on it

Lucky?! We create our own luck if any, and all ref decisions have been precise... so some good refereeing, Cisse should of been sent off for Sunderland for his grotesque tackle - but he didn't, Chimbonda should also of gone. As it happened we were the team with 10 men, not them who should have had 9 men! I wonder what the score line could of been then??! Perhaps it would of been us who was lucky then!

agree lee, I think teams create their own 'luck'. Enough times Man utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool have won in injury time etc, about time we started doing the same!
